Maangchi Meetup

By Maangchi

I met my blog readers on Saturday afternoon, July 26. All eight members got together and had a great picnic. I was surprised that they recognized my face quickly. “Hey, Maangchi!” that’s the first sentence when they saw me. I took off my sunglasses to show my face so that they could find me easily. I was standing at our appointment place next to the fountain in Bryant Park.

I’m posting some photos here with their permission. It was such a pleasant time

During the meeting, our conversation kept going on. It never stopped! About what did we talk? Of course, we talked about Korean food again even though we were eating delicious Korean food at the moment. We had su jung gwa, gimbap, mandu, kimchi, and rice cake! Someone brought a bottle of wine and we could say “Cheers”!

    Sure, mae woon tang is already included in the list of my upcoming videos. I may not use daegu, but you can use the same recipe for daegu.(cod) Thank you very much and I hope to see you soon.

  7. I found your website while searching for Korean food recipes to make for my husband (we are newlywed!)
    My mom is an awesome, “natural” cook…but I found it intimidating to try to make Korean food. Mostly I make Pajun, soupy noodle with myulchi-stock, etc.

    Thank you for your time and thought in preparing these videos and also for being so excited and supportive of your viewers!

    I hope to see you at your next gathering in NY! =)

    ps- Can I request a video/recipe for daegu meh-oon-tang?? Thanku!

    You must be talking about the fish corvina which is kind of croaker fish, “Jo kie” in Korean.
    As you said, it’s very simple recipe. Sprinkle some salt on the fresh fish and dry the liquid from the fish with paper towel. Then cook it on heated pan with vegetable oil until both sides turn into golden brown. That’s it!

    I may show you how to do it in one of my upcoming cooking videos. Thanks,

  9. Hi Maangchi,

    I go to my favourite Korean restaraunt at least once a month. my favourite is the friled Yellow Carvina. It does not look so hard to make, so I tried to make it at home. But it does not look so good. The taste is pretty good. Wonder if you have a recipe for that:)

    Yes, it’s called “siru dduk” red bean layered sweet rice cake. Many people (mostly korean friends) love my siru dduk. : ) I will post the recipe video later. Thank you!

  11. Hi, I just found your blog today but I had to post to ask for the red bean rice cake recipe. It looks so delicious, my eyes popped when I saw it!! Do you think you could make a video about how to cook it someday?

    Sure, I will post the recipe for fish cake side dish later.
    For kimbap filling:
    *fish cake
    Cut it into long sticks and put them into a heated pan with a little bit of vegetable oil and stir them. Then add a little bit of soy sauce (very little) and sugar.

    I have never heard or had “kimchi rice cake” so far.

  14. Maangchi, I am wondering hoe to make a kimchi rice cake. What is the best kind of kimchi to use with that?

  15. I have to remember to check the blog more often. My Saturday plans didn’t pan out either, and it took me a moment to realize that I used to be near Bryant park fairly often.

    On a side note, can you put something on your blog about fishcake? Where to get it? How to season and prepare it as a side dish or part of a meal?

    P.S. Are you on Facebook or some site where we could sign up and get an alert for the next time that you do a gathering?
